    Newbie sailor. What's my next move?

    Charter the 17 from a fellow anarchist. Maybe even rent to own. Write up a co tract that fits both parties and make sure insurance is included. Maybe even have the newb join as crew on the keel boat for beer can races. Win-win

    Yep, was to leeward and just behind when this start went pear shaped. It was one of those,"this is gonna be fucked up starts" at the 2 min mark. Like a 35 mile race so we just went full conservative and found clean lanes pretty quick. The poor dudes from this video did an even bigger cock up the next day, but it probably wont be on video

    Pearson 33-2

    My best friend owns one. I have raced beercans onboard and done a ton of buddy boat cruising from our boat (cal 34) with them alongside on the water and at anchor. It's an alright boat. Sails pretty good. Big main, kinda short j dimension. Very shallow bilge, so water on sole is an issue. The interior is ok, but the table takes up a lot of room, so the v berth is kinda small. They are not big people, so that's ok for them. Let me know if you have any specific questions. If I dont know, I can ask him

    Sweetest sailing old plastic?

    I was patient and waited for one that someone had already spent cash on the expensive shit. Honestly figured it to be a few years boat for us and then move up. We are still smitten with her! Really fits our needs well in a tidy package. Hell, we lived aboard (wife, me, 2 kids, and a dog) for 9 weeks this year while in between houses! She is headed to the yard later this month for a full paint job. Figure she deserves it for her 50th birthday this year...

    Sweetest sailing old plastic?

    We have a cal 34 and even though based in light air, mostly use a 108% jib for easy handling. When friends are motoring, we find she will sail just fine. Trick with the cals in particular is to not load them up with shit. They start squatting in the transom. I like the rangers, Ericsson, and some of the islanders, but the cals really tick all our boxes

    Christmas-New Years Sailing Holiday Ideas?

    Catalina island in the off season is pretty sweet. Just do Avalon as it can be near empty. We are headed there for Thanksgiving again this year FWIW...

    Catalina 320 sailing characteristics offshore

    Autopilot discussion aside, I think the cat 320 is one of their better performing boats. They seem like a Good all around design

    Moms cooking... your favorite

    My mom always told us she was a good cook. It wasn't till later in life I realized she was a pretty average cook. Her family recipie for yams is good. None of that shitty marshmallow on top... her tuna salad and meatloaf were as memorable as I can think of. I am a huge fan of simple, local and fresh. Doesn't need a bunch to make it great. I am even starting to enjoy cooking, but my wife loves to and she is still better at it than me...

    SB 2 KH

    Hey Paul, nice seeing you and the whole dana point contingent again! We deployed the zero at the start and were above most of the rest of our fleet (the 1d35 being the exception). Got a full beehive on the deploy. The mc31 and j111s went to kites below us in prep for the normal lift to the island. We had to mongrel the zero down to follow suit and get the nylon up which was quite costly. It quickly became apparent that with the tigers lack of form stability, our svelte crew weight, and an a2 (all the other boats in our class had flatter reaching kites in their arsenal) that we were 30 degrees low of the waypoint. Still expecting to get lifted, we soldiered on and dropped below the mc and j boats line. Looking at fast boats ahead, we could see the lift wasn't materializing like normal. Full panic to get the kite down and go up with jib. The unfurled zero still down below, we went into a fast upwind mode with the jib and got into the task of untangling shit in prep to mongrel the zero back up. Needless to say, the bow team wasn't very happy at this stage. As we converged with our pack at the Island we found we had actually gained back a little on the j111s (mc31 had retired by now) but lost a bit on the 1d who sailed a great leg. We got back in touch down the back side and stayed in more pressure just jibing in puffs and avoiding holes that snagged the 1d and the lead 111. Lots of leverage on the exit from the Lee of the island with the 1d high and forward, 111s in the middle and us low all on port jibe. As we approached shore on the mainland, the wind continued to lift and those guys came back out on starboard. We led them back instead of taking transoms. Turned out to be a near perfect layline call from like 30 miles out. We kept pressure longer as well and that was it. Saw the 1d right at the final mark and knew we had done pretty well at that stage. As to the furler, I think it is a colligio but not certain. The setup with the 2:1 was cobbled together, so we have some improvements to do there. Also, I wish the sail was cableless as it would have had a wider range and we may not have been so quick to change to the big kite with everyone else.
